Race Report - When the MTN Guys first asked me to share my Ironman St. George story with the rest of you, I was still trying to soak in all that had taken place on this epic record breaking day! As I write this, still traumatized and tired from race day I

Race Preview - There are plenty of good reasons to do the inaugural Central Lakes Cycle Duathlon on Saturday.
"Name seven!" a guy shouted challengingly.
- First of all, the event is UNIQUE! Launching with a 19.6 mile bike portion (TT start), then followed by a 3.9 mile run and concluding with a 6.9 mile bike, this is unlike anything that most multisporters have ever heard of, much less participated in. And if you can't get enough saddle time, this event is definitely for you. Most tris have in the neighborhood of a 4-1 bike-to-run ration. Standard dus are in the 3-1 range. The CLCD has almost a 7-1 bike/run ratio. Cool, huh!...

Race Coverage - Nordica Stocker (photo L) is very pretty and has really thick hair. But you already knew that, didn't you?
Did you also know that her favorite color is orange? And that she unashamedly watches the "Real Housewives of (fill in name of city here)" and is really sad because Amy Winehouse died? (FYI, We are, too!)
And did you know that she won her first multisport race last Saturday?
And she did so with panache....

Event Preview - Lake Elmo Park Reserve is an ideal place to stage a duathlon, and for the past decade some of our region's most exciting and competitive run-bike-runs have been contested there. The courses are scenic, fast, well-designed and easy to manage. A Win-Win situation for athletes and event producers alike.
The 11th edition of the event of which we speak--the Oakdale Duathlon--will take place on Saturday and between 400 and 500 folks are expected to race. A glance at the current start list has us anxious to do some prognosticating. So, without further ado:...
